Martyn Brewster has been a serious and productive print-maker for many years, developing his own silkscreen techniques and making relief prints and etchings in his print studio. Recently he has been working with master printer Andrew Smith to make complex multi-plate carborundum prints. Andrew worked extensively with Howard Hodgkin.
Martyn’s work is inspired by colour and light, by the natural landscape and the sea on the Dorset coast. He is an artist whose seductive use of colour and vigorous originality has produced paintings and drawings that are collected worldwide. His drawings are often made on site and these and his etchings tend to be more figurative and in black and white with a brilliant control of tone. Like his paintings, Martyn’s silkscreen and linocut prints set colours against one another to find poetic expression in strong lyrical abstract compositions.
Martyn Brewster was born in Oxford in 1952. He studied Art and Design in Hertfordshire and Fine Art (Painting) in Brighton followed by a Postgraduate diploma in Printmaking. He has been working as a professional artist ever since with regular solo shows in museums and galleries in London and throughout the UK as well as exhibitions in USA, Canada and throughout Europe. He has won numerous awards and his work is in private, public and corporate collections worldwide including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the British Museum. Recently his work has entered the collections of Pallant House, Chichester, and the Hepworth Wakefield. In London and New York he is represented by Waterhouse & Dodd. He has shown regularly at Sladers Yard since 2017.
